Can My Child Participate in the Programs and Eventually Become a Mentor?

As the children participate in the programs and develop the maturity and abilities, we automatically give them more responsibility in the programs. Some children have become mentors, paid job coaches, and completed internships and independent studies in our company and programs. Some children have strengths in certain areas of a program. The student can help to teach in the area of their expertise to the rest of the students. We are very flexible in our approach and constantly are teaching children how to lead themselves and help others along the way.
